There are many reasons why I use LinkedIn. Other than me getting a job, which is obviously the first reason.
Other than that I think LinkedIn posts are really informative and uplifting. You come to know about the good happening around you. There was this poll once on LinkedIn which said which social platform do you go to, to get positive news? Most of the people said LinkedIn (including me). Also maybe because it was asked to people on LinkedIn so maybe that’s true for them, your instagram folks are not seen here (much).
Also people raise awareness about certain issues and share personal experiences to make a point. And most of the people support them! That is something I really admire.
That said, I haven’t really started posting anything frequently on LinkedIn yet, (not even the links to these blog posts) but I do like to be on the platform.
I remember I was very reluctant to join LinkedIn. I thought maybe it’s all about work and not so much fun. It is true though. But I like it. My passion brought me here. I can connect with so many people from positive psychology background and talk to them. Get to know eachother, talk about Positive Psychology. And also attend the webinars hosted by them.
Also I feel motivated and fired up to make new connections and seek out new opportunities after being on LinkedIn.
So if you are joining LinkedIn for the first time, welcome! Don’t forget to connect with me on LinkedIn, here is my id –
Its a great platform and I hope you enjoy it there as well and I hope it proves beneficial for you.
P.S – I got my first job through LinkedIn! 🙂 Just saying.
P.P.S – After writing this I realised how muchhh I use LinkedIn. “Is LinkedIn the new Instagram for me?”
